Vertical Tabs

This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls).
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

"​I have to report my delight with the league. Although I have been losing in this round, it's an absolute pleasure to meet other players and to have to play out of my skin. My tennis has improved enormously. Also, these socks you supply are great. They have stopped the pain in my toes. Thanks,"

Angus Bearn

"Even though I lost, it totally restored my love of playing, hooray."

"I just wanted to say thanks for putting me in the league. Even though it didn't particularly go very well [in terms of winning matches], it was nice to play again after my knee problems. It was very enjoyable and I felt my game was getting better as I was playing more."

"It was a brilliant round. It was tough and challenging as most of the time I was not in form. However I am always eager to improve. Next round here I come again.", Sudeep Gurung

Sudeep Gurung

"Many thanks for organising all these games. It's great to see someone promoting tennis the way you do,"

Vlad Hanzlik

"I love the idea of finding some matches and having competive matches eventually after some good practice"

Player Comments:

  • "The match was played on a sunny but cool Summer's eve in Charlton. After the break both players were rusty and this decided the first set, with Al adjusting just a little quicker to take it 6-1. The second set was even more interesting. It went with serve to 3-2 but then Stephen broke brilliantly and stormed into a 5-3 lead. The crucial game came at this point, where at 0-40 down facing set points on his own serve Al managed to pull out his best serves of the match, hitting 2 aces and then winning the 3rd point. After that followed the game and the momentum had swung, as Al saw out the set 7-5," -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "Graham has played very well hitting few drop shots, slices, or down the line, serving well too. The score line does not give a true picture of the game where Graham managed to break my serve on few occasions in the first set. I am sure the score line will be different next time we play.

  • "Great opening match for both players in hot conditions at Greenwich Park! Martin began well with a few aces / good returns and won 1st set 6-3. Chris stormed ahead in second set with some good baseline game leading 5-1 but Martin steadied the ship with patience (and a few double faults by Chris) and won the 2nd set and match 7-5"  -- Martin
